Our first 24 hours in Bali have been a lesson in opposites. The first night we arrived ina “big rain” that seems like the sun had already set. Here is Mia walking down the corridor towards our guesthouse.
Ida and Komang (married couple) are our kind and funny hosts. They showed us the rooms; we talked about the weather and kids for a bit. We quickly learned that Ida is Muslim and Komang is Hindu. The owner of the place lives in Brazil and is Buddhist (sorry no pic yet).
We could barely keep our eyes open, but we dragged ourselves to a beachside dinner of chicken satay and fried rice.
As we waited for food, everyone fell asleep on lounge couches! No pic, though it was probably funny looking. Food arrived and we perked up – delicious! Back to our room, neither Amy or I slept well through the pounding rain.
The rain lasted all night, and we all crawled out of bed at first light, still tired and cranky.
Then the sun came out, and behold, so did our attitudes! Our room has a beautiful view looking over the ocean.
